Craig Ramsay is captivating. He combines humour, ingenuity, passion and off-the-chart energy.  Craig speaks of “moments of inspiration” and that is exactly what he delivers.  The National Philanthropy Day Celebration and Craig’s presentation was seamlessly relatable to the audience of donors, volunteers, foundations, leaders, corporations, and others involved in philanthropy.  He keeps the audience engaged with the perfect blend of storytelling and showmanship. Craig Ramsay is not just a speaker, he’s an experience!  Our attendees left feeling inspired and motivated.

Nora Romero

Vice-President
Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) Canada South Chapter

Craig Ramsay shared a message of hope and resilience with the students of my high school. He perfectly promoted wellness and self care based on his expertise in the health care industry. He shared the most powerful messages of the importance of kindness and respect for others.  His tips on how to manage stress and obstacles were life changing for the youth in attendance.  His message was just what the students needed to hear! He was able to draw on a wide range of experiences and stories that resonated with a particularly diverse audience. I know all my students were motivated by his message and that he made a positive difference in many of their lives.

Theresa Williams

Walkerville Collegiate Institute

Craig’s talk “Racing with Faith” was truly inspiring, entertaining, and informative. It was a pleasure to hear his insights and experiences. Craig’s presence at the event was invaluable, and I believe that his message resonated with everyone who attended. Today’s youth need good role models like Craig Ramsay, especially gay youth. His words have the power to make a positive impact on their lives.

Rev David Old

Windsor Annual Fall Wellness Fair

Craig Ramsay’s presentation was all we hoped for, and more! He is a fantastic storyteller, weaving holistic ideas for health and wellness with exciting video clips. Of particular inspiration to me was his heartfelt faith and trust in divine intervention.  His genuine love for family and friends shines through in his presentation, and he is a living example of how to manifest the gifts of spirit.
